Finally finished Air. Dang it Key and your feels.... I really want to cosplay Haruko or Misuzu(the version of her near the end in the white dress). I could possibly fit in Haruko due to the simplicity of her outfit and my friend is getting a long red wig...

I hope I'm not being too ambitious trying to customize a wig for Krad from DNAngel. Hopefully, I won't hate myself by the end of the con for wearing such an annoying thing.

Soooo another con has ended. Aside from feeling like I've been hit by a train now since it was three days of dressing up and very little sleep, I had a blast. I have to say, I have never felt more loved in cosplay than I have in pony cosplays. Everyone absolutely loved my Derpy and Rarity - heck, I was even asked for autographs in-character. Try to ignore that Rarity and Derpy's signatures look similar but yeah. XD It was really fun, and I think I love the brony community even more now. X3

My only regret - meeting Nicole Oliver and not being able to string two sentences together. For real, I wasn't actually nervous until I was like right there at the table. Then I was just like, "I DREW SOMETHING FOR YOU." And Awkward Rarity awkwardly handed her a drawing. XD She's so nice and funny, though. X3

Np~ I love buying wigs off taobao. ^^; I use Taobaonow or Taobaoring usually.

I would love too!~... but I'm at University now which has me in debt... can't see myself spending 1000$+ to get my butt there right now. I'm considering going to grad school up there...(So maybe in two-three years)

I feel like I should know more about TaoBao than I do. It seems like such a useful site, because cheaper cosplay products.

And I feel you on the university debt thing. .-. It's still early, but are you looking at any particular grad schools yet?

Taobao is an awesome site for cheap cosplay stuff. I don't have pierced ears and its pretty hard to find stuff that cater to that in the states but I've found a few places on Taobao that do.

I'm lucky I went the cheap route by going UH's Community College program. I should only end up owing $10,000 in loans when I get my BA. I'm currently looking at Washington State University....not a lot of schools on the west coast have what I'm interested in sadly. (European/Middle East History)

So I realized the other day that I have a skirt that almost perfectly matches the skirt Eponine wears in the Les Misérables movie. However, it's black and I need it to be more of a brown. I'm not really keen with the idea of dyeing it, though, as I wear the skirt relatively often and really like it black. And I can't seem to find another one anywhere. So frustrating! >_<

I can't find my bottle of fake blood. >_< Dang it, I was planing on doing a Badbye version Gumi mini-shoot today but I needed that blood. Guess I probably will do a Heroine shoot in order to test how the tattoo paper works. Now to wait for my sister to get home...

Made some progress today! I finished modifying Yusuke's shirt, started painting Cain's cross, got the straps hot glued to the oracle bell, and finished final budgeting for Yusuke. I'm now gonna go sew the second set of snaps onto Syaoran's cloak.

I have decided, as much as I want to do all the little things to get Gaz, Piro (B4K4), and Wolfwood finished this weekend, I need to clean my room. It's been a wreck for months, mostly because we've been out of town on the weekends. During the week I've either had class, or just want to enjoy being home after work during winter break. This weekend, I have no excuse. I just need to gather a few DVDs together, hunker down, and get that room clean! Then I can move on and finish costumes and get others progressing again. Blah.

WSU is a huge party school. I think they have the biggest party school reputation out of all the major universities in WA State. Not that that necessarily means their programs are badly run, though. Probably I can track down someone I know who went to WSU if you have any questions you want to ask? They'll probably only have BA-level information, though. I thiiiink one guy from the year below me went to WSU for a history major, actually. Most of my high school graduating class went to either UW or Central Washington University.



Unrelated: 66 days until con time. Here is an accurate representation of cons sneaking up on me:
